Serial Arsonist Strikes Again...

The number of abandoned/derelict residences that have succumbed to unexpected fires since June of 2016 has hit double digits today after another century old home was ignited around 3AM, along with a garage a few km away.

I really hope they find the people responsible for these heinous crimes, but something tells me that Guelph/Rockwood regional police think their time is better spent elsewhere.

These are more than just "abandoned buildings", they are someone's property. They have lots of salvageable materials, invaluable memories and design features... There is no bringing back the historic value lost here, and in the other cases of arson. Needless to say I am heartbroken over this recent loss.

Things like this remind me why what we do, while "illegal" is so important. We preserve the memory of these gorgeous buildings in photographs and other artworks, even after the locations are demolished.

I hope they catch the ones responsible. Not only are historic buildings being lost, but something like this will only lead to increased security at abandoned places as well as more suspicious authorities.

This is how I like to describe the hobby to people when they ask me.

Oh no... they didn't just get this place?!?!

I just discovered it in June and was dying to get back there to get some close ups of that plaster crown moulding in the living room on the right side

They struck again and set fires in 2 more houses in the Elora region... The fire department has really dropped the ball on this investigation.

Only so much they can do when its houses out in the sticks, no security cams, no witnesses. Hopefully they find the bastards sooner or later.

The labor and artistry put into that masonry alone...

...So many more appropriate things to burn to the ground.

People will say almost anything to get attention, unless this individual can back it up by actually proving the people did it (admission via text or what have you) or report it to the police then we're forced to believe what they're saying isn't true.

Looks like there was enough complaints made that they've established a designated team to look into the now 14 suspicious fires in the region.

Another update;
Crimestoppers is offering $1,000 to anyone who can help them identify the people responsible.
